I’m trying to figure out why the pain after my liver biopsy last Thursday was so intense. From everything I’ve read, a liver biopsy should not have hurt as bad as it did.
All I could come up with, is that the surgery must have triggered some kind of pre-existing source of pain in my abdomen, and just magnified it.
(Since I have a lot of abdomen pain in general, maybe this was just one too many in that area, and the pain nerves just went bezerk?)
I have never felt pain that severe before in my life…ever. I’ve had severe chest pain with an elevated tropinin level, I’ve given birth, and I’ve had gallbladder/appendix/tonsils removed, and NOTHING compared to the pain I felt after this biopsy.
I still have some pain today, but it’s not as bad. Bad enough that I have to be careful, but I can walk around and have a normal conversation for a few moments.
